milk frothed sugar near sugar far we have a new milk frother. it is about the fanciest thing we own. i’ve become a frothing queen, even taken to frothing the milk i add to my afternoon cup of earl grey. sprinkled with vanilla sugar, it comes close to being perfect.

    I don't even drink milk and this looks delectable!! I've been having maple sugar lately and I think that would be tasty too!!

    Your photos are beautiful! A friend gave us a frother about a month or two ago and I am hooked as well! It makes coffee better–just feels a little bit more decadent. But I haven't used it with tea—thanks for the inspiration. Ill be trying it this afternoon!

    Oh yum, I love frothy coffees. Nothing beats a good mug of cappuccino on a rainy day!

    mmm pretty much nothing beats a london fog (especially a homemade one) on a chilly day.

    Mmmm … that makes me jealous and I'm not even a big fan of froth! I like it in theory, in aesthetics, less in taste.

    I love frothed milk! I'm a steamer addict, and I would love to have this for my chai, I don't drink coffee.

  • Reply Erin January 27, 2011 at 1:58 am

    meg: what is a london fog? earl grey with steamed milk? how fancy!

    emma: i agree utterly. of course. having said that, if you're all itching to get a frother of your very own, ours is a bodum. link in the post.

    I always used to use the little Ikea frother earlier, but now the milk I use froths up itself and creates the perfect layer!

    The bodum link shows several frothers. Which one do you recommend?

  • Reply Daniella C January 8, 2014 at 4:52 pm

    Froth and vanilla sugar…. YES. What a great idea! Do you make your own vanilla sugar, or is there a brand you recommend? Sounds delicious!
